Editorial Reviews

From producer Guillermo del Toro (Pan s Labyrinth, The Orphanage) comes a tale of dread and terror from the darkest corners of reality. Julia, a woman suffering from a degenerative sight disease, finds her twin sister Sara hanged in the basement of her house. Everything points to suicide, but Julia is compelled to investigate what she intuitively feels is a murder case. Determined to retrace her sister s final steps, she is drawn into a maze of hidden threats and spiraling dread - a dark world that seems to hide a mysterious, malevolent presence. As Julia begins to uncover clues to the truth of her sister s death, those close to her begin to disappear. Her sight gone and confined to her sister s house, Julia soon finds herself trapped in a nightmare from which she cannot awake.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is a Thriller September 26, 2011
Format:Amazon Instant Video
The director, writers and producers, for better or worse, have made a Hitchcockian horror film for contemporary horror audiences. This means that it has a few obligatory scenes and actions that an audience today has grown to expect in films, but that's just for the fans of the genre. What this film also has, is edge-of-your-seat thrills. It is first and foremost a thriller, everything else is secondary. This will probably please people who don't watch a lot of horror films because they don't like the contemporary expectations. I really enjoyed the movie and I've seen it four times, once alone and I've shown it to several more people. Every person I showed enjoyed it, but I will admit that by the fourth showing in just a few weeks, I needed a break. I still didn't want to miss my favorite scenes, though. It's well-shot, the actors are strong, the story keeps you on edge, the light is used well, and the penultimate climax is one of my favorite in recent years. The director uses the conventions and style of Alfred Hitchcock to make a contemporary popcorn flick that is well worth multiple viewings. Definitely watch this one in the dark.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable... January 23, 2012
Format:DVD
The movie is more of a thriller than a horror. It isn't anything earth shattering; however, it is very well done. The acting, pacing, camera work and story line work extremly well and create a suspensefull mood.

Julia's sister gets murdered and she is the only one who thinks something is wrong. As the story progresses you learn more about Julia's relationship with her husband. Also, that Julia suffers from the same eye disease as her sister and she is going to go blind as well. Things really get moving when she starts questioning her sisters friends and neighbors about her sisters "mystery man". I don't want to say too much incase you are considering watching this movie and if I say too much it will give everything away considering the plot is pretty straight forward.

Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The Optimum Home Blu-Ray release from the UK plays perfectly on US Players even though the back cover states Region B (for Europe). Many British Blu-Ray releases are actually region-free and will play on US players. You may have to google for details or just take a risk - like I did with this purchase.

NOTE: Although the movie is playable on US players, the extra features for this movie are not.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! June 24, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This is literally the first foreign film I have ever watched and it did not disappoint. Despite needing the subtitles to understand most of the movie, it still made me emotional. The combination of horror, violence and drama really tied the whole movie together. Belen Rueda is pretty phenomenal and I really liked her chemistry with Lluis Homar.

I'd say there were a few times during the movie where I didn't quite know what was going on but those were few and far between and I mean lots of movies have a few tiny plot holes so no major love lost there. I'm actually really glad this movie wasn't all horror and gore. In the 2 hours this movie was on, I really felt for the main character and how desperate she was. Like I said, the main actress Belen Rueda is so fantastic.

Simply put, I highly recommend this movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absence is a Man of Fear October 27, 2011
By Ben
Format:DVD
Julia's twin sister killed herself but there is something quite not right. Is there really someone who caused it or is it just her imagination running wild? When Julia and her husband, Isaac, go to her twin sister's home to prepare for Sara's funeral, she can feel "it" too. Everybody around her does not see what Julia's eyes is seeing. Yes, there is evil lurking but is it a ghost? a presence? an unknown something?

Finally going to be released here, this chiller from Spain is superbly crafted and the eerie Hitchcock-esque ambiance makes this a scary affair for me. The director really knows how to play a lot of tricks with your mind, you will never know what is the cause of all this until at the near end of this atmospheric thriller. Belén Rueda who played Julia and her twin sister, Sara is so magnificent in her double roles.

Don't let the subtitles ruin the fun in watching this Spanish flick. Make sure you dim the lights and open your eyes!

This mystery/horror/slasher-thriller is very original and scary as hell, and it comes from the guy who brought you movies like Pan's Labyrinth (2006),The Devil's Backbone (2001), and Hellboy (2004-2006).

The thing I like about this film it is that it reminds me of the 1970's and 1980's Italian giallo slashers by the famous Italian movie directors like: Dario Argento, Luciano Ecroli, Mario Bava, Umberto Lenzi or Sergio Martino. The movie has everything that true fan of the genre will appreciate: mysterious and creepy atmosphere, spooky music, a lot of never-twisting moments, and the superb acting. Of course, there are some predictable moments, and it is strange that the characters have typical Jewish/Russian names since the action of the movie takes place in Spain and the movie is of Spanish production.

The movie is basically about a woman who is losing her eyesight, as she steadily goes blind she desperately tries to solve the mysterious death of her twin sister (she is found hanging in the basement of her house).

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not great.
Not as good as The Orphanage, but still rather good. Has some really creepy parts and beautiful imagery. The film loses its magic about 3/4ths into the movie though. Read more
